Summary

Three days after losing the downhill in an upset to Marie-Theres Nadig, Austrian favorite Annemarie Pröll, World Cup giant slalom champion in 1971-72, expected to atone for her loss to Nadig. Pröll was the second starter and took the lead with 1:30.75, 1.6 seconds better than the first starter, Austrian teammate Wiltrud Drexel. Those two times would hold up for the silver and bronze medals. But starting 10th was Nadig, who again surprised the ski world by winning a second gold medal, with a time of 1:29.90. Nadig was only 17 in 1972, but would eventually win 24 World Cup races, and skied competitively into the early 80s, winning the overall World Cup title in 1981.
